School officials violated state anti-discrimination law when they would not allow a transgender fifth-grader to use the girls' bathroom, according to a ruling by the highest court in Maine that's believed to be the first of its kind.

The family of student Nicole Maines and the Maine Human Rights Commission sued in 2009 after school officials required her to use a staff, not student, restroom.
A school was sued and lost for not allowing a boy who dresses and feels as if he's a girl to use the girl bathroom. I'm not even going to give an opinion yet. What do you all think about this?

They're also trying to extend this to locker rooms where young non transgender girls or boys may be showering or nude.

If she is living full-time as a girl, then I would think that it is pretty safe to assume that she is indeed transgender.

Thus, I have no problem with this.

Why exactly should I care about this? At least in school, one can separate the frauds from the non-frauds much more easily.

No the women have to use the same restroom as some guy who "feel's" like a woman. That is just fine and dandy.......well not to the girls who have to share the same restroom I bet. Nobody cares though about the girls.........all they care about is the guy who "feels" like a woman. Hell I would have "felt" like a woman back in the day if I could go shower with em all.

The best part of that story is that nobody cared until "the grandfather of a 5th grade boy complained". WTH? An old dude complained that someone was using a bathroom that his grandson didn't use?

In such a scenario, would you have lived as a woman 24/7, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year? Would you have gotten a sex change?

Maybe this old dude also has (and/or will have) a granddaughter who attends this school?

Either way, though, I don't approve of what this old guy did here.
